Hello my bees,
I have finally managed (with your help) to narrow down the choice of rings. But I just can’t seem to get over the last hurdle to make the final choice.
I love the simple, elegant kite-shaped design of the ring at the bottom. It is clean, elegant and would suit for all occasions.
On the other hand I also love a design I made, the ring as a symbol of our blooming love. I usually wear a lot of flowery tops etc, so I guess it would go with my style. I’m just a little worried that i’ll eventually get bored with the design, although atm I love it.
Metal would be rose gold in both cases, and the moissanite in 6mm/1ct would be another common element in both rings. it’s merely a matter of whether to pick a small halo or petals.
Which one would you pick and why?
Appreciate all your feedback ladies 🙂

I picked the bottom option, I keep thinking about how those petals on the flower ring would snag on everything!

@IowaDDS13: +1, my frist thought also. It looks a bit cumbersome.
I prefer the classic simplicity of the second.

@IowaDDS13: I second this. I have a 4 prong solitaire, and the prongs still will catch things like my hair or fine sweaters.

I think the flower ring is so gorgeous, but I would also worry about it snagging on stuff. the kite set halo is beautiful too though!

@Sunstar1987: This is funny for me because the kite-oriented ring is similar to a ring that was one of my favorite choices before I got engaged and the floral one is sort of similar to the one FI picked for me!
I think it comes down to your lifestyle. My ring has petals that are more rounded than that and still get caught on things a LOT. I can’t wear a sweater without worrying about snagging it or just getting my finger stuck. If I was someone who did a lot of sports or was just more active, I think I would constantly be worried about bending a petal. Since I do more office-job type stuff I don’t have to worry about that so much. I’m glad he picked the more unique ring but I would have also been very happy with the kite-set.

I dont like everything that is going on with the first ring. I love the second ring. It’s doing just enough but it’s still gorgeous.

1st would prob snag on a lot of stuff… but definitely unique!
I voted for the second bc it’s more functional (i guess in the sense that it looks like an engagement ring and also won’t snag on stuff lol)

2nd for me too. My first thought was snagging too!

The floral is so cute and awesome, but it’s not practical. It will snag on everything and you may not like 10 years down the line. I suggest the second one and if you really had you heart set on the first one maybe get a CZ so it won’t cost a ton and you can still rock it.

@MexiPino: I’m also more of an office person, the worst i put my hands through is some baking for which i’d take off my jewellery anyway.
Would be very curious to see your flower ring though! there aren’t too many designs out there so I merged this in photoshop from a few rings i found and liked. One jeweller even said it wasn’t possible in this size it would be too fragile, while another one said it can be done so I am currently waiting for a third opinion.

I think about all the gunk that would get caught in the first one. It’s also very trendy and I could see myself getting tired of a design like that. I like the second one better.

I like the 2nd one a lot. It’s very elegant.

@Sunstar1987: Not just in a work environment, but everythign from tucking in your shirt to getting stuff out of your pockets or pants, it just seems like it would get in the way. And structurally, I’d be afraid of the petals being bent. I work in an office too, but there and in everyday life, it’s inevitible that you’ll knock your hand on something. I love the design, but think it would be more suited for something for special occasion and not daily wear.

@Sunstar1987: I likke the first as it’s different, although think the petals could be a nightmare catching on things as pp siad.. You said it was a 6mm/1ct.. is that the true weight of the moissanite itself ? I know 1 carat diamonds are typically 6.5mm.
If you go with the halo–a more classic look, I wouild get a larger size simulant. It wouldn’t be cost prohibitive like a diamond and think a little larger moissanite would look more proportionate. Just my 2c though.
Both choices are quite pretty!
